Seeing Something like spiderman, GOW, or RDR2 quality  on a portable IN SWITCH 2 would diffidently would impress me in a much nigger way then switch has.

Um... what exactly does "a nigger way" mean?

I never understand the comments about being impressed a handheld is running a current gen console game. Especially after the 360/ps3 gen we have seen many games designed to run on several times more powerful hardware be scaled down to 360/ps3. These were consoles that were ancient and only had 512mb of ram. switch has modern tech in comparison, a 2.5X more powerful GPU, and 6X the Ram, I had no doubt it can run some demanding current gen games. What would impress me is if it ran one, and managed to be a great looking switch game, which still hasn't Happened yet, instead of just being your usual choppy, or Sub HD mess

On my personally opinion, I think it is because Nintendo players are used to play on systems which were outperformed by other same gen consoles since a decade ago, even though the graphics on their systems are mostly left behind by one gen, like 3DS performed like PSP, or Switch performed like PS3/360, they can still feel the upgrade on graphic side, comparing with last gen Nintendo consoles instead of other same gen consoles. just make myself an example, I played every single PM games from GameBoy to Swtich era, every time GF made upgrade on graphics for new gen console, I did feel impressed, because I compared it to the last gen graphics. I think that makes sense why people feel impressed by switch running some games no matter current gen or last gen.



Atelier Lulua on Switch. Amazing that such a game can run on a portable console.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Being used to systems with less power can be a factor, but for me at least it has more to do with the fact that when I was a kid mobile graphics looked like this:

So seeing something like Doom 2016 or Hellblade running on a handheld just really impresses on me how incredibly far we've come just in my lifetime.

Exactly, that's what I'm talking about, and one more thing, Nintendo and its games are just barely attractive because of graphics, can't say there's no good looking games on Nintendo systems, it's just unlike Sony, they focus way more on gameplay than graphic stuff.

I didn't, actually, but that's good to know. I might sport a Rocket avatar, but I'm not quite as smart.

The same could be said for console games. First mario, and zelda looked similar to that except with color.
